Relationship of classical and non-classical risk factors with genetic variants relevant to coronary heart disease.

Eur J Cardiovasc Prev Rehabil 2006 Oct; 13 (5): 738-44, PMID: 17001213

In addition to the well established cardiovascular risk factors, evidence suggests a possible role of genetic and non-classical risk factors in the development and progression of atherothrombosis. We aimed to determine the relationship of classical and non-classical cardiovascular risk factors with candidate gene polymorphisms potentially involved in cardiovascular risk in the general Mediterranean population.
